Direct drives offer many advantages compared to a traditional combination of motor and gear box. A direct drive solution is energy efficient and very accurate, without backlash.

The elimination of traditional oil based gear boxes removes the mechanical boundaries and lifespan reducing characteristics of traditional gear boxes and creates a maintenance free, very quiet, fast and accurate robot.

The ABIflexx Delta robot excels in production processes where hygiene plays a major role.
